Must Listen!

Very insightful podcast. Both James and Jonas actually watch the games, which can’t be said about a lot of people with opinions on the team. I truly believe their opinions are bias free, with no dog in the fight, they simply analyze what the see in front of them. Keep up the amazing work!
